I think A and I have found a car. We have been shopping all weekend and looking at pros and cons of various cars. We test drove the hybrid cars...prius, and civic, the scion and have looked into many others. A test drove the Mazda 3 today (we had both kids so I stayed back, but sat in the drivers seat to make sure that I would be comfy driving it.) We both really love it, it is sporty, A says it drives really smooth. I thought it was the most comfortable car that I sat in, that is important when we are talking sitting in it for 710 miles! Another neat thing is we get the fleet pricing with this car also (a great RR perk, car shopping with no hassle!) which we would not with the Toyotas or Hondas.
We figured out that it will take us 10 years before the Prius would save us any money because it is quite a bit more expensive. We also found out that the batteries can not be recycled, so yes you are saving fuel, but littering the earth with a batterythat we would have to change about every 8 years...HMM not sure which is worse there.
So, we have our Durango up for sale on Auto trader and KSL, hopefully it will sell soon. And until it sells we will be limiting the amount of driving we will be doing because that thing is a big gas HOG!
